The Institute of Computer Science, Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Göttingen invites applications for the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Applied Computer Science.
The Master’s degree in Applied Computer Science (M.Sc.) is a graduate programme that requires 120 credits (4 semesters) to be successfully completed. The degree includes three areas of study: Core Curriculum, Professionalisation and the Master’s Thesis. Students may select one programme specialisation for professionalisation from one of the two concentrations: Systems-Oriented Concentration and Application-Oriented Concentration.
- Applied Systems Development
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Bioinformatics
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Geoinformatics
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Ecological Informatics
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Medical Informatics
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Law and Computer Science
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Business Informatics
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Scientific Computing
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Computational Neuroscience
- Applied Systems Development with a concentration in Digital Humanities
- Ecological Informatics
- Medical Informatics
- Law and Computer Science
- Business Informatics
- Scientific Computing
- Computational Neuroscience
- Digital Humanities
- Data Science
The Master’s course of studies encompasses 120 ECTS credit points (C). These 120 C are divided among the following fields – Core Curriculum (30 C), Professionalisation (60 C), Master’s thesis (30 C).
The Master’s course of studies does not include any mandatory study modules. Instead, students arrange with their mentor individually tailored, goal-oriented course schedules within the scope of the study and examination regulations. The individual course schedules are approved by the Dean of Studies.
In the Core Curriculum, students acquire deeper knowledge of systems-oriented computer science in order to develop the professional skills to apply and expand the specialised methods of the discipline.
In terms of professionalisation, students have the opportunity to choose between Systems-Oriented Concentration and Application-Oriented Concentration tailored to their individual and professional inclinations, as well as professional ambitions, and to acquire core job-specific and interdisciplinary skills.
While 48 C are selected from Applied Computer Science or the field of specialisation in the Application-Oriented Concentration, 30 C are selected from Applied Computer Science or the field of specialisation and 18 C may be selected from the Computer Science Core in the Systems-Oriented Concentration.
Professionalisation includes an additional 12 C key qualifications and competences.
As a requirement for admission to the Master’s degree programme, the applicant must have completed at least a six-semester degree programme with conferral of a Bachelor’s degree in a degree programme in “Computer Science”, or in a closely related discipline comprising at least 180 ECTS credits. The conferral of an equivalent degree earned in a degree programme completed at a German university or a university situated in one of the Bologna signatory states also meets the requirements for admission.
As prerequisite for the appropriateness of past academic achievements, proof of at least 90 credits in computer science, applied computer science, foundations in mathematics, and foundations in natural science must be furnished. It is necessary to provide proof of at least 60 credits in computer science and applied computer science and at least 15 credits in the foundations of mathematics and natural science.
English-language skills must be demonstrated by the minimum passing grade in an internationally recognised test, or by equivalent proof. The test may not be taken later than two years prior to submission of the application for admission to the Master’s degree programme (date received).
For the application you have to fill in the provided online application form. To complete the application form the following documents are required:
- Curriculum Vitae (CV) [PDF]
- Certificate and Transcript of Records (in one file) [PDF, PNG, JPG] (acceptable in German or English)
- Proof of English Proficiency [PDF, PNG, JPG]
- if required: Proof of German Proficiency [PDF, PNG, JPG]
Please prepare all these documents in advance before you start with the online application form. To simplify the evaluation of your application make sure that the scanned documents are correctly oriented and scanned in a reasonable resolution. Furthermore, the labeling of the document should be meaningful so that it is obvious what the document contains.
